For the past 6 years, Friends of Barr Lake has hosted the Raptor Run 5K at Barr Lake State Park. It is a favorite race for local runners, as well as runners who come to the area for just this event. If you haven’t joined us in the past, now is the time! The course runs through the beautiful natural setting of Barr Lake State Park. See the details of the 7th annual race below.
PLEASE NOTE: Because the course goes in part through the nature preserve, dogs are not permitted to run in the race.
